Every year at this time I go outside and blankly stare at a gorgeous patch of  just-enough-sun/dripping-in-bougainvillea spot along the side of my house. It sounds dreamy, save for the dead basil and dead rosemary that I so ambitiously planted last Spring.  It’s tragic because I love to cook and I have “the spot.” But gardening merely showcases how undisciplined I am (I never did get either child on a nap schedule.) But this year Gemma is old enough to enjoy the spoils of an herb garden and so I might just give it another go. While flipping through a British decor magazine I found this lovely site, and this even more lovely packet: Butterfly seeds! They somehow attract butterflies to your garden for a truly magical moment….and how pretty would that look next to the bougainvillea?
